14 Days of Holidays - Giveaway Day 2 December 02, 2015 00:00 2 Comments

Hello JustNick friends!

Welcome to Day 2 of our 14 Days of Holidays cut file giveaways! Each weekday from December 1-18, 2015 we will be giving away a FREE cut file for that day only!

Today's Free Cut File is Ornaments

Christine joining you today with some shaped cards that I made using this file!  I love making shaped cards and these worked perfectly for that!

I made one card with each ornament shape available!  I love that there are four fun options!  In case you are wondering how I made them into cards here's a little detail into that:

First off I rotated the ornament so that it was upside down.  I then chose to create a mirror image below it. This makes it so that I now have two of the ornaments.  I then put the hook part of the ornaments close enough together that they are slightly overlapping and weld them together.  You could also do this and mirror the ornament to the side and weld sides together instead of the hook.  Either way you end up with a really cute card! If you have questions I am happy to help explain further!

Now on to a little detail about each card and some of the additional cuts that I used! First up is the Merry Christmas Card.

For every card I stuck with a similar base start.  I had a white ornament and backed it with red patterned papers.  I then added a silver metallic paper for the top part of the ornament and added some silver stickles and silver gemstones.  I also cut all my sentiments in green.  Doing these things helped simplify the process a bit.  I then added some stickers or die cuts to each card to fit the personality of the cut.  For this one I added the Merry Wishes file for my sentiment. I like how it is open and airy just like the original file itself.

I'm a sucker for stars and adding a peace sentiment to this from the Holiday Sentiments just seemed right for a night scene.  

A santa hat tops off the word "joy" which also comes from the Holiday Sentiments set.

Last up is a Be Merry card with a sentiment from the Merry Wishes set. We can't wait to see how you are adding JustNick cut files to your Holiday projects too!
